Why 340B Matters

340B DSH Hospital Safety Net Role

An analysis of disproportionate share (DSH) hospitals shows that 340B DSH hospitals have low-income patient loads that are more than twice as large as non-340B DSH hospitals, and 340B DSH hospitals provide nearly twice as much uncompensated care as non-340B DSH hospitals. When 340B DSH hospitals are grouped into quartiles by size based on patient costs, 340B hospitals across the board provide significant levels of uncompensated care.
